There’s something undeniably magical about the month of May. The days are already longer, the air warmer and the promise of summer is just on the horizon. It’s an invigorating time of year when we can start packing away our winter wardrobes and cosy nights in turn into memorable evenings out.

Californian Wine Festival
We’ve often called ourselves a temple to Californian wine and as the ‘little brother’ property to the Peter Michael Winery in California, it isn’t hard to see why! In tribute of our proud heritage, we hold a Californian Wine Festival each year, showcasing the very best wines from the Golden State. Taking place over two days, festival goers will have the opportunity to sample fine wines alongside a sensational five course menu on 11th May and then enjoy a prestigious wine tasting on 12th May. Here’s to your very good health!

Discover the Judgement of Pairs
In 1976, something truly amazing happened that changed the world of wine forever. The finest wine aficionados of the day gathered together to participate in a blind tasting event in which, to their own amazement and chagrin, they unanimously favoured the Californian wine over the French. This was a major turning point because up until then, French wines had been widely regarded as far superior. The Judgment of Paris is so crucial to our history that we even have a floor to ceiling painting depicting it in our California Bar. You can recreate the experience for yourself with our ultimate dining experience – a seven course tasting menu with French and Californian wine paired with each course.

Judgement of Paris Tasting Menu – £89.00 per person
For the full experience, add paired wines for an extra £95.00 per person
